It is tragic when the very blessings God showers upon us become snares that capture our love and attention and draw us away from Him. Hosea 2:12
I remember me allowing football to take the place of God!
God had blessed me with a little talent but He’d also given a lot if heart!
My attitude was this, there’s no way anyone that lines up in front of me is going to sack the quarterback or tackle the running back!
This was a good attitude to have but it became an obsession with me!
Because of this nothing else mattered! All I did year round was think about football!
Of course I forgot about God in the mix which should have been top priority!
It’s true, sometimes the good things God gives us becomes a trap or snare!
Keep your eyes on Jesus my friends!
